I love Thrift Stores
December 04, 2019

And it was fruitful, got Rogue Galaxy for PS2 for the reasonable price of 1 single dollar. I had scoped it on Amazon to see that I pretty much saved a bit more than 10 dollars including shipping. While the game has signs of usage it still plays pretty good. If anything, I can always sand it at places I visit so there was really no way I made a wrong choice overall.

I've ordered more PS2 games on Amazon and I expect them pretty soon, this has become a nice X-Mas so far.

Crappy, crappy DELL PC.
November 25, 2019

So with this cheap system (under 100 dollars in fact,) spazzes all over if I make the mistake of tapping it on its surface, rebooting itself and threatening with messing itself on the inside to the point of me losing anything that I have stored in it. How wonderful. Its bad enough it sports that fallacy of an OS that Windows 10 is, which slows to a CRAWl and even freezes when I try to save a damn image, that on top of it is as fragile as a freakin' house built of cards. I just can't even.

Sonic Boom
November 22, 2019

Sonic Boom was featured in Cartoon Network in 2014 and lasted over 2 years before it was given the boot.* It was based on SEGA’s new line of Sonic games with the same name and was one of the last shows that involved the blue blur. While the games left a lot to be desired, the show was pretty decent, often going for parody and comical interaction than being serious on the subject of stopping Eggman/Robotnik from conquering the world and such. All of the action would take on a single, solitary island somewhere around the world rather than in cities and other exotic places from past iterations. The show comprised of 15 minute short episodes, most of which would not be consistent with any type of story involving characters and more often than not it would break the 4th wall in abundance.

MAME woes Part Deux
November 19, 2019

Unlike most emulators, MAME is quite a stubborn application. Some versions will run most ROMS you get, others won't, even when you have ALL the bits and pieces of previous versions of a game chances are it will just not play in one version than in the other. As I stated before, I am now running Windows 10, which is not very good on my side of things, but I must adapt since Microsoft will no longer service Windows 7, which in turn, was a good OS that would let me record with little to no problems anytime.

MAME News
November 17, 2019

As I had stated, I was able to buy a crappy PC with what measly money I got at the moment, after the last desktop went up in smoke. Majority of problems on this system being Windows 10's compability with some programs, including the old MAME application I had for years and had used to game and record for video uploads.

After much searching was able to use a more or less stable version of said application and it runs OK enough for me to use FRAPS and continue my gaming recordings. I might try other old versions and see if I can get 100% emulation and recording but for now, I am fine they way it is.


YouTube's new regulations and guidelines might hurt your channel.
November 14, 2019

E-mails being sent to all accounts from the site, stating they will be changing their regulations to make sure if your content is child safe. I also read that if its decided that your channel isn't "profitable," they got the "right" to shut it down.

I am getting tired of Google's skullduggery to be honest. Its already hard enough to keep a channel that you are being pushed to make it relevant or else. Not sure how this will also affect any other channel which is just for fun or personal, but I have no doubt this company will continue finding ways to make your stay hell a bit more than usual.

The new Sonic Movie trailer hit the internet today
November 12, 2019

Seems Paramount wised up and revamped Sonic for the better. He looks a lot more easy on the eyes than that horrible thing they went with the first time around. It also seems they added more stuff by the looks of it, such as Green Hill Zone during Sonic's narration about why he came to "the real world." Seeing Jim Carrey getting punch is a big plus as well.
